Introduced by Ibanez in 2002, Artcore models have become the hollow-body guitar of choice for practicing and professional musicians. Artcore’s combination of quality workmanship and affordability has created legions of fans from diverse genres such as blues, country, rock and jazz. Artcore offers musicians the purity of an old-school jazz box as well as a hybrid semi-hollow rocker. Artcore guitars are highly respected for their tone, sustain and the way the instruments hold their tuning. The series continues to push the boundaries of guitar building.
The Ibanez AS73FM’s Flamed Maple body and sustain block offer wonderful acoustic resonance and a naturally bright tone. The Ibanez-original Quik Change III tailpiece enables fast and easy string changing. The Classic Elite pickups offer a rich, nuanced tone with a fat low end. The AS73FM is a versatile semi-acoustic electric guitar, perfect for a wide range of musical styles and playing techniques with sumptuous looks.

Here at Easy Music Center, we care for our instruments from the moment they arrive to when they ship to your door. All instruments are stored in a climate controlled environment and put through a 12 point inspection checklist before being shipped.
First, we check the finish of the instrument, carefully inspecting any blemishes on the surface. Next, we check the playability and setup by inspecting and adjusting the truss rod (if available), bridge, nut, and frets. If the instrument has electronics, we test all of the electronic components to make sure they are functioning properly.
After a thorough inspection, we then move on to maintenance. We start by lubricating any moving parts on the instrument, such as tuning machines. We then move on to cleaning and oiling the fretboard along with the frets.
Once maintenance is done, we stretch and tune the strings and play test the instrument. After this, we do a final inspection and clean/detail the instrument before packing it up for shipment.
We’re excited to be a part of your instrument buying experience.
